Weekend Splurging Spoils Your Goals

BadFood_Full

The article titled “Weekend Splurging Done Right” explains that we tend to overindugle on the weekend (see my Dear Diary for today).  These “cheat days” may foil our weight management or weight loss goals.  How to avoid this?

  • Share that fudge sundae with your spouse or kids.
  • Go for tiny tastes, like a mini-cheesecake instead of an entire slice, or a single square of chocolate instead of a whole bar.
  • Eat a healthy breakfast to control your appetite.
  • Eat more whole grains, fruit, and veggies as your day gets started so that you’ll feel full longer and feel satisfied with small splurges.
  • Split an entrée or skip the bread basket when eating out, especially if you want a taste of dessert.
  • Limit your alcohol — drink water or another calorie-free beverage between drinks — or apply those calories to a food you’d enjoy more.

Think I should take in some of this advice!
